Do you ever get so out of practice of doing something that it's hard to get started again? This is what I have done with writing. I've been so exhausted that I come home and get in the bathtub...or I read...or I eat bonbons on the couch (okay I don't really do that...but I'm tempted).
So this is me getting things back on track! Here are all the Midweek Randoms from the rest of the month of November!!
The month of November and December, my husband traveled A LOT. A LOT A LOT! He was gone 26 days! And, while I think I'm pretty good at single-parenting it, it is not something I'd like to do regularly. YUCK!

Over Thanksgiving Break, my sister and her boyfriend of Awe Captures Photography, took family photos and they turned out spectacular. They took them in the Desert, using a tripod. We really had trouble finding a location for a shoot. We tried to find some places near my brother's house to no avail and then thought we might go out to the windmills to get traditional Palm Springs photos, but finally settled on Indian Canyon. I'm glad we did; it was just breathtaking!
My sister-in-law's sister was supposed to be in the family photos, but she got sick and thought she might have strep throat. So she took advantage of the quiet morning and stayed in bed. Her kids made it in our photos though!

Thanksgiving morning, Connor, Isabella, and I went to Starbucks. It was perfect timing because we were able to see the Turkey trot down Palm Canyon while we sipped our coffee and hot chocolate. I asked Connor to snap this photo of Mr. Howard and me because this is the exact spot of our first date 15 Novembers ago. I asked him to make sure he got the Starbucks Coffee in the background of the photo and he did such a great job! It's so fun to think about how different our life is from that first date!

For Thanksgiving this year my entire Kirkpatrick family decided to spend the holiday at my little brother's house! Since I had the whole week off and since hubby had a training in Southern California the week before Thanksgiving, I decided to go down the Saturday before the holiday. I drove by myself with three littles! I was particularly proud of myself because we left at 5am. You can see in the picture of my map that it was pitch black out! You can also see that at 5:13am, we still had 8 hours remaining (which really is 9 hours when you stop for lunch and bathroom breaks along the way).
